Of course someone named Natasha Sunshine would know how to keep hair at its healthiest during the sunny summer months!
The Pureology PureArtist knows that UV rays, pool chemicals and extreme humidity that summer is known for can cause breakage, dulling and out-of-this-world frizz. Below are a few of her suggestions for keeping hair healthy in the summer.
1. Use a hair masque (try Pureology Strength Cure Restorative Masque) at least twice a week to give your hair an extra dose of nutrients.
1. Skip using a leave-in conditioner and thermal shield (like Pureology Colour Fanatic) before blow-drying. It’ll keep your color from oxidizing and Colour Fanatic in particular has 20 beautifying benefits.
2. Toss a leave-in conditioner in your beach or pool bag to spray before you swim or bask in the sun.
3. Mix an ounce of your daily conditioner (Sunshine recommends Pureology Strength Cure Condition) with a bottle of water. Shake until milky and spray onto hair, then tie into a knot to protect from chlorine.
3. Skimp on deep-conditioning. Condition every time you wash and use a masque for a minimum of 5 minutes on a weekly basis.

Maintaining healthy hair can be difficult in the summer. Between sun, salt and chlorine, your clients’ hair can take a major hit.
Advise him or her to change hair care habits with the season (hello, retail opportunity!) with help from Sam Villa, founding partner of Sam Villa and Redken education artistic director.
5 TIPS TO HEALTHY SUMMER HAIR
1. PROTECT Oils can be hair’s best friend in the summer. Get one that’s light, like Redken Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine, to deliver restorative and protective properties. Good for second- or third-day hair and adding shine.
2. SET “Take advantage of the braid parade,” Villa says. The trendy style is great for a day by the pool or at the beach, and in the evening just unbraid for beachy waves and curls.
3. TEMPERATURE Avoid high heat with tools in the summer–hair is already fragile during these hot months. “Stick to medium and color-treated temperatures,” Villa says. “And slow down to speed up. Slow down the pass with the iron so heat is directed to the sections of hair that need to be altered; it prevents unnecessary wear on hair and styles it much faster.”
4. SPRAY Make sure your client doesn’t leave the salon without an anti-humidity, frizz-proof hairspray. Villa recommends Redken Fashion Work 12 Versatile hairspray; it’s formulated with vitamins C and E to protect hair and prevent color fading, and it provides 24-hour humidity resistance and 8-hour control.
5. SHINE Blondes especially tend to need help in this department. Pump up shine with a gloss (a la Redken Shine Flash 02 Glistening Mist). It has vitamin B5 and camelina oil to boost hair’s natural shine and control frizz for an ultra-polished look.

It makes sense that the annual Costume Institute Gala is one of the most glamorous evenings of the year; the Met Ball kicks off the Metropolitan Museum’s fashion exhibit at the Costume Institute. With great fashion comes great hair, and we have a selection of some of the best, most fashionable styles from the 2014 event.
Jennifer Anniston, Reese Witherspoon, Jenny McCarthy and Chelsea Handler are just some of the A-listers with sexy new bobs. It’s a fresh look for spring/summer, but some clients just aren’t into the big chop. Ruth Roche, Artistic Ambassador for Pureology Serious Colour Care, suggests creating a faux bob using braids and lacing to take the length up – it will put a spring in any girl’s step. See the video on HERE!
“A faux bob is a great look to offer a client for a special event, it’s not going to be a look they want to tackle every day,” says Roche.
STEP 1: Section the top area of the head and pin up.
STEP 2: The bottom hair will be braided into four vertical sections with three strand braids – right over center, left over center, etc., adding to both sides as you go and securing an elastic about 4” from the bottom of each section. This flattens the area, creates a base for pinning and brings the length up.
STEP 3: Tuck the braids up and secure with a pin, leaving the last 4” to hang.
STEP 4: Lace ends to shorten and expand hair to spread it out.
STEP 5: Drop the top portion of hair, lace it to shorten the length and gather and pin hair up so the ends are roughly the same length as the ends of the braids.
STEP 6: Any shorter top layers or fringe (depending on length/type of original haircut) can be arranged to fall over the previous layers to blend.
STEP 7: Finish with Pureology Strengthening Control zero dulling hairspray for soft touchable hold
